Chapter 19 is a beautiful chapter because it states the Gospel in its purest form. Remembering that this is the oldest biblical text makes this even more amazing. Job knows that his Redeemer lives and that the day will come when he will be resurrected in a physical body to join God. Even though he may die today, he will live in bodily form with his Redeemer. Job gets that there is something much greater and meaningful than our lives and bodies here on earth. The resurrection is a real event.
